"Legitimately number three. Legitimately. But the Democrat Party hates America should have been number two. But this is what the New York Times does when it hates you. And of course they take independent bookstores and they give them a special increased model, that is number, to defeat conservative books. Go find an independent book other store than maybe a half a dozen in the country that carry my book. My wife Julie and I we were in Key West and they have like two or three really nice little independent bookstores. They didn't one have of my books Mr. producer. Not one. They're not going to carry my book. They're not going to carry O 'Reilly's books. They're not going to carry Marlowe's carry anybody books. else's They're not going to books, conservatives, because we're a moneymaker for retail stores, but they're ideologues. The number one book in the country was Enough by Cassidy Hutchinson filled with dribble, gossip, crap, but the libs love this so does the New York Times. Don't forget you can get the audio version, the Kindle version. They're all out there. You can get a signed version from Premier Collectibles.

A highlight from Kevin McCullough
"Welcome to the Eric Mataxas Show. Do you like your gravy thick and rich and loaded with creamy mushrooms? If no one was looking, would you chug the whole gravy boat? Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Stay tuned. Here comes Mr. Chug -a -Lug himself, Eric Mataxas. Hey folks, welcome to the program. If you're like me, last night you were able to watch the debate and you deliberately skipped it for your mental health. That's just where I am in life right now. I caught parts of it which made me wince and cringe, sometimes wince and cringe. I never wept, but you know what, it's probably better for me to find out what my guest thought. He may have watched the debate. My friend, Kevin McCullough, we call you votes tridamus because you are a prognosticator, a seer, a prophet politically speaking. Kevin McCullough of that Kevin show, how are you? I'm well and I can see some things very clearly today. There should be no more debates. These exercises in futility, and that's what they've turned into, are becoming embarrassing to the cause of what this election should be about. And last night, it's just hard to put into words how bad this debate was, from its execution to the policies, to the answers. It was just nothing good about it. Some people in my audience care about this. I'm in Irvine, California. I'm in a hotel room you people can see. I'm speaking today, so today's Thursday in Costa Mesa. So if anybody wants to come and hold my hand and hug me about the sadness of the debate, or just talk to me or get book signed or whatever I'm going to be tonight in Costa Mesa, you go to my website, ericmataxas .com, and you can see me and talk to me and hang out and whatever tonight in Costa Mesa. This is Thursday, folks. And tomorrow, there's a prayer breakfast here in Irvine that I'm speaking at. But the reason I bring this up, Kevin, is because I rarely have time to turn on the TV. And last night, I realized, oh, I'm pretty wiped out. Let me turn on the TV. Let me just look at the debate just to see. I literally really couldn't bear to watch it. So as someone who watched it, I'm talking to you. Am I being cruel or unfair? Because it was unfair. What little I saw was genuinely unbearable. No, as I was saying just a second ago, from the way it was structured, to the execution, to the answers to the substance, the format's wild and out of control. There's not really a possibility of getting very deep on any one of the single questions. And I think a lot of the questions that are being asked are not the right ones. And so as I've watched, and I didn't watch all of last night's debate in real time, I caught up on a bunch of it after the fact. But as I've sat through both of them now, it is easy for me to ascertain that no one in this field on that stage last night is serious about becoming president. And they're not biting into the enormous lead that the former president has only built on since the first debate occurred. The first debate, they had 11 million viewers put to put that in perspective, Eric, in 2015. For the first debate, they had more than 15 million viewers in 2020. For the first debate, they had about 18 million viewers. You're talking about a diminishing return a, a much less interested Republican base watching these, and they're not they're not going anywhere. And in the meantime, it's putting even with some of our better idea people on display as amateurs, even with Doug Burgum on the stage, hard to believe. Yeah. That would be like a rematch between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson. You're telling me people, Lisa Hutchinson was not able to be on the stage this time, as far as we know. Yeah, I think he took a, he took a face shot in the early rounds, and he was in his dressing room. Honestly, the thing there, what I said on Twitter this morning, was that they acted like it was 1985. We are living in a time in America, where most people see, we are in freefall, hell has been unleashed. Things have gotten so bad on so many fronts that it is, if you don't believe in God, which I do, and I trust in him, but if it weren't for that, I'd be scared to death. What is happening in this country? And they acted like it's 1985. And we're gonna, we're gonna have this conversation. And I thought, this is this is bad. I mean, the way the the deep state has been weaponized to go after Donald Trump, for example, I don't care if you're running against Trump, if you like Trump, but if that doesn't strike you as, as fundamentally un -American and sick as anything, as though, you know, we were being bombed by China, it's pretty bad. They seem not to be concerned. Well, they're responding to questions that have been supposedly thoughtfully put together by the moderators that are doing the debate. And Ron DeSantis did a little bit more of this last night, all of them to have done more of this, where he actually came with a little bit of an agenda to give little speeches every time that he was given the opportunity to speak. And he got more things out on the record than what he was asked about. But that should be the strategy of every candidate going into every debate. That should be the strategy of every thinker going on every media outlet that you can. Sometimes, Eric, it's better for me to go on Fox or Newsmax or somewhere and have something that I'm more intent on saying that what they want to ask me about. And if you're, if you're running for president in times of crisis, and I don't, I don't view the period that we're in right now as a peaceful time. We're not actively at war with anybody, but we are actively at war with evil on, on almost every front. So we need, there needs to be an urgency. There needs to be a sense of, we cannot phone it in and do it like we've done it in the past, especially knowing that we are going to run up against probably illicit, illegal, cheating schemes, trying to keep the election from actually being determined by the people that have the right to determine it. And before people criticize me for that, we've replaced the population of the bottom eight states in just illegal entries into the country over the last three years. Well, let's do that in a minute, because you wrote an article at townhall .com. That is one of the stunning nightmares that they acted like not, not really a big problem. But what you just said about cheating, I think most Americans know the Democrats cheat at elections. How is that not the most important thing to discuss when you're talking about a presidential election? Are you and I imagining, are millions and millions and millions and millions of Democrats actually cheat? Now they've done it for decades, but now we know that they have turned it into a science. They are at war with we, the people, they don't actually care about winning in a fair way. They just care about winning. How is that not unbelievably important and something that has to be discussed? But the Fox hosts and the Latina from Univision, which is another bizarre thing, they seem to act like January 6 was Trump supporters being violent. They seem to act like the election was fair. Biden won. What world are they living in? All of them. I don't know what to say. And obviously, I think Vivek and Ron DeSantis, they're the only two candidates that I can take seriously. I've got problems with them a little bit. But the whole thing was like, they were all play acting like we're living in a different America than the one most of us are living in. Well, I will hold one exception out to what you just said. And I believe that Nikki Haley had a sense of urgency about her last night. And she did in the first debate as well. And I think that's why she's now out polling DeSantis in several polls, is that people are beginning to understand that as a former governor, she probably has a shot at the VP pick. I don't think the VP pick is going to come out of this group. But if Trump did want one that I'm seeing kind of be serious on the issues that are the most pressing, she's the one that kind of gets the vote in terms of... I think of her as deep state, neo -con, next. All right. That's fine. I'm just saying in terms of her performance thus far. We've got you our wonderfully. I'm so glad that we do. We'll be right back.

A highlight from Gavin Wax
"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Mataxas. Hey there folks. Welcome. We have been told that tonight there's some kind of Republican debate. I'm not sure if that's a rumor, but it might be true. And in case it is, we thought maybe we should talk to somebody about it who can tell us what is going to happen. So we have back our friend Gavin Wax. He's with the New York Young Republicans. Gavin, welcome. Eric, it's great to be back and I'm looking forward to the vice presidential debate tonight. Oh, the vice presidential debate. Well, you know, I think Trump said it best that all these guys are looking for a job or trying to apply for a job. It's really just a job contest. No one actually on the stage is going to become president, certainly not this cycle. So we'll see how things unfold if that's how it's looking. It's funny and true, obviously. Many funny things are true. Many true things are funny, but you're right. Now, who tonight's debate? I'm planning not to watch it. What who has qualified, quote unquote, qualified to be in this debate? As far as I'm as I'm aware, it's nearly everyone from the original debate. I think maybe Asha Hutchinson has dropped off. You know, he was polling at, you know, point zero zero one. Now I think he's pointing at polling at point zero zero zero one. So, you know, that that decimal difference makes all the difference in getting on the stage. But you'll see the usual cast of characters. Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, Chris Christie, you know, those are the guys that are probably most will get most of the eyeballs, will get most of the attention. People will be seeing, you know, what they do, what they say, if they mess up, if they don't mess up. And then the others are basically just background actors, you know, just adding some ambiance to the stage, I assume. Yeah, it's really not ambiance, actually is the opposite of ambiance. But I know what you mean. Let me ask you, though, for sure. Chris Christie doesn't want to be Trump's vice president because he seems to be there only to express his peak and animus toward Donald Trump. He seems to to be there only to fulminate and to pummel the air with his horrible words against Donald Trump. Yeah, no, you're correct. He probably falls into the camp of people that is not that is not looking for a job, but it is on a on a revenge tour. Many people have accused President Trump of only running for a revenge tour type of campaign. But in fact, you look at individuals like Chris Christie, the only reason he's Donald J. Trump, President Trump, who he believes wronged him or slighted him after the whole presidential transition in 2016 or, you know, Christie didn't even do his job.
A highlight from Republican Debates, Election Predictions, and Media Criticism
"At some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas. Welcome to another Financial Guys podcast. I'm Mike Hayflick along with my partner, Mike Speraza. We are always excited to be here, Mike. Um, we are here after the second Bill's win. Yeah. Yeah. We will, we'll keep it at that. Every time we talk very little, things go well. So let's, let's keep it at a win and big game Sunday. Miami. What should be right. A massively popular game. I mean, when they put up 70 against Denver and we, we basically, did we shut out the three points? Three, three. Okay. We held, held Washington, the Washington commanders to only three. That should be a really, really dynamite game. So. Had to change their name due to political correctness. I know, I know. And we had some conversation about that. The people I was watching the game with were reflecting on, I guess the good old days when the, the nicknames of teams just didn't seem to matter as much, but it matters now. Now they want to take down statues. You're an Iroquois guy. They're taking that name away. The chiefs because apparently saying chiefs is very, uh, politically incorrect. I mean, a leader. You can't be called the leaders anymore. Maybe it'll be the Iroquois comrades because everyone's got to just hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Yeah. And, and you know, nobody gets a gender anymore. Nobody can dominate one or the other. Even if it's a sport, there really might not even ever be winners or losers. They might not even keep score anymore in sports. Like it's just going to be for the experience of it trophy for the trophy for the trophy. Line them all up. They're all going to look exactly the same. There'll be gender neutral trophies. When will we have a they, them team name? Like the, the Washington they, thems, like when, when, I mean, I know that sounds outrageous, but that's where we're headed. Yeah, it's true. It's going to be comrades. Friends. Yeah. The friends, the Iroquois friends, the Iroquois comrades. It literally is heading that way though. Something where you go, what is, what is this sport? Like we don't even know based on the name, what the sport is. We don't even, yeah. You won't know. Like usually you could derive some more information from things like that. Oh, no, no, not anymore. No, you're going to have to dig real deep. You're going to have to show up at these events and, uh, you know, maybe wear a nice hoodie and a pair of shorts at the events. Yeah, I agree with you. And, uh, you know, maybe right after you went through the Senate chambers to vote on something, you can head and do a game with your hoodie and shorts on. Anyway, the next one, the last thing I'll say is the next one will be the Patriots. They'll be getting their name taken because that represents Donald Trump and his movement. We got to take away the name Patriot, right? That'll be the next one. There you go. You know, I just, I can't with these people anymore. It's really getting to be absurd. Yep. Totally. So, uh, Mike, let's start with this one. A second Republican debate coming this Wednesday night, September 27th, and Dana Perino, who I've always enjoyed listening to. Um, she will be joining Stuart Varney and Ilia Calderon at the Ronald Reagan library. presidential Suitable place. I love it. Yeah. And, uh, I, we were just chatting a bit before the podcast, so let's just line this up. All right. I don't know the order, but we're going to have Pence, Christie, DeSantis, Rama, Swami, uh, Doug Burgum made it Dougie Dougie. Um, who is that? Who else? I'm I've got five Nikki Haley. Thank you. And then, uh, there should be one more. Um, I did pens from, let's write this down. One more time for everybody. Pence, Rama, Swami, right? DeSantis. How do I not remember? Tim Scott, Tim Scott. Thank you. So, so seven this time, um, not Asa Hutchinson, I think you said he, he didn't make it. Didn't qualify. So, um, of course the big elephant in the room is that Donald Trump again will not be there. Just tell me your thoughts, I guess, on this next upcoming debate. Are we going to hear anything different? Is there any going to be anything that really makes people go, Whoa, this guy's really racing to the front or female. Um, if it's Nikki Haley, anyone going to race to the front after this one? I really, I mean, I think we're kind of wasting our time here and I'm not saying it as a, as a Trump voter. I'm just saying it realistically. Right. I mean, at this point, the lead is 40 to 50 points. Nobody makes up that ground than a debate, right? Like Nikki Haley had a great debate last time. She's still polling single digits. Right. I don't agree with Nikki Haley stance on a lot of things, but she, she fared well in that debate and she really didn't grow or fall behind anymore. Right. So I think that's the tough part. When we look at these debates, the Donald Trump in the 2015, 2016 campaign years, that is your like unicorn, right? Where, where you just go up there and go bananas. And then you end up, you know, taking over the field. The difference was there was no Donald Trump in that election, right? Like you had a Jeb Bush, but he wasn't the guaranteed slam dunk candidate right now. You have Donald Trump, Mike, and he is the guaranteed slammed on Canada. The only one that we thought maybe had a chance was Ron DeSantis and he has crumbled mightily, whether you like him or hate him. It's just the facts. He's, he's in trouble. Right. I mean, so what, what are we accomplishing with these debates other than kind of a, I guess I'll say wasting our time. Yeah. And I, I just, I just think it's worth breaking this down a little bit. Like what is it that people like you and I think that these others are just inferior to a guy like a Donald Trump? Like, and I'll tell you my opinion first. Mine is I just don't think they'll win. And I just feel like more and more people need to, you got to vote and expect that the conservative Republican candidate in this case wins. And I don't think any of these other people could, could actually win. I don't think they have enough, you know, experience. They don't have the fortitude that a Donald Trump has. Well, I think that that to me is, is there's two reasons why I'm voting for Donald Trump, right? Number one was I thought he had a very good four year term other than the COVID 19 issue. And I, I'm telling you right now, I say this to people all the time. If it was Ron DeSantis, if it was Donald Trump, if it was Hillary Clinton, that, that, that whole debacle was, was a disaster and there was no way you were going to look good in that debacle. I'm just telling you. Yeah. Number one, but that was a Trump fault that I have. And if I ever talked to him, I would tell him that that I do not agree with what he did with COVID. It's easy for me to say that now, but, but at the end of the day, he had a great four year term other than that, in my personal opinion. Number two is every time they've tried to knock him down at the knees, Mike, that has made me want him back more, right? The, the every time they indict him, I want him back more, right? Every time they try and silence him with gag orders, I want him back more. This is how I think a lot of conservatives are feeling. And at this point, it's kind of like, okay, is Rhonda, here's what my other point, I don't mean to keep going on, but at the end of the day is whether it's Ron, DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, or Donald Trump, I'm going to use those three for a second. They will be treated the exact same way by the media, by the Democrat party. It doesn't matter who that candidate is. It doesn't matter. Right. People always say like, Oh, but, but Trump's hated. If DeSantis is a candidate, he's already taken crap from the leftist media, right? Like if he's the candidate, he's going to, it's going to be open up another can of worms. I don't think it matters. The reason why we got to go with Donald Trump is he's been there. He's been able to handle it. We know that whether you like him or not, he's handled the media and he's handled the Democrats well. And we need that experience. This is the election of our lifetime. And I will say that now, this is the election of our lifetime. We need to win. Dana Perino says, I believe the economy will feature prominently because we know that that is the biggest concern and preoccupation that is worrying Americans. And she says in many ways, in my opinion, the economy is the thread that runs through all of these other possible topics. For example, if you're concerned about crime, one of the issues is what kind of resources do you have and are you willing to use in order to help deal with that? I think she's spot on. I think when it comes to the economy, the economy sort of is the fuel and whether you then have a notion to, you know, actually shut down the border, improve childcare, improve education, then the, the economy obviously is the main thread that actually everything else seems to branch off of. If you have a lot of people working, for instance, you're going to have a thriving economy because supply and demand is going to balance out. You're going to have lots of products and services to offer and a lot of people can afford these things. Right. So, uh, I, I agree with her. Plus it is Fox business that's hosting the event. So might lean a little bit more toward economics. Yeah, I think it should. I agree with you. I mean, at some point we have to take the economy seriously. We can't just keep printing money and sending it overseas at some point, you know, and I say, I've said this to you, Mike before, going to get groceries now at times, like they ring all the stuff up and I'm like, Holy crap. I bought, I have a cat. I bought five cans of cat food. They're, they're the size of like a lacrosse ball, not even. And it's like $5 for five cans. I'm like this, this thing costs more than my kids at this point. This cat's going to be very thin. It's going to be out of crash diet. I mean, but seriously, how do people, Mike, that don't make money? And I say this in a sad way, like how do people that don't make money survive? Even going, you go to a local fast food restaurant for two people. My wife and I it's 30 bucks. I'm like, what the hell happened out here? I told that is what's going on. And that's scary. Yeah. When they have to make those kinds of hard choices. Right. Uh, all right. So, uh, let's move on. So speaking of Trump, we're talking about these other seven candidates that will be there Wednesday, this Wednesday night, nine to 11 PM in the second Republican debate, Donald Trump will not be there, but this came out like in a Washington post poll. Trump is now up 10%, uh, over a potential run against Biden, 10 % double digit. Now if you just pin Trump against Biden again, first your thoughts, and then we'll go a little deeper into this. Well, I'm not surprised. Um, I think, I think Americans are getting sick and tired of it. I think Americans are worried about our futures. I think the migrant crisis is hurting the Democrat party because you have liberal places like New York city that are waking up saying, Oh my God, we can't do this anymore. And there's like 10 ,000 migrants in New York city, not 10 million. Right. So like, like it's starting to click, I think with certain people, number one, number two, Mike, I think it's hard to hide Joe Biden's cognitive decline, right? The left can say whatever they want in the media. You just can't, when you fall over on things, when you do talk like that, I mean, they, it's a problem. It's a real problem and it's visible. Um, do I trust these polls? Yes and no. I think, if I think America is as smart as I think they would, the polls should be probably higher, like 30 % lead for Trump. Um, but I think the numbers that keep growing in Trump's favor, the margin of error is not that big, right? Michael, like you look at the Republican primary polls, the margin of error is not 40%, right? He's up 40%. So even if they're off by 20%, he's still up 20%. The same thing's starting to happen in these head to head polls with Biden. It started, you know, Trump down, then it was Trump even, then it was Trump three, five, now it's 10. I mean, that's a lot. Yeah. And so I want to read a little bit here. So the post ABC poll shows Biden trailing Trump by 10 percentage points at this early stage in the election cycle. This is, by the way, the Washington Post little write -up, uh, after the poll was done. Um, so this is, this is actually humorous. Although the sizable margin of Trump's lead in this survey is significantly at odds with other public polls that show the general election contest to virtual dead heat, the difference between this poll and others as well as the unusual makeup of Trump's and Biden's coalitions in the survey. So Mike, the more words, the muddier this all gets, right? It sounds like excuses coming up, right? It sounds like Kamala Harris. It really is. It's like, yeah, total word salad. Um, I just said suggested is probably an outlier, right? So, so this, this I thought was interesting. Um, Byron Byron York of the Washington examiner said the post dumped on headline news in quotes from its own poll. So basically they do a poll. They say that their poll is likely an outlier and, and he, he goes on to then say Washington Post sub heads suggests its own poll may be an outlier. That may be true, but they put no such disclaimer in headline three years ago when they published a poll of Wisconsin, right before election day in 2020, showing Biden up 17 points on Trump, 10 points more than the average of other polls at the time. That was real clear politics, president Tom Bevin. So, so funny to me, so interesting, right? Even when they try to do something where they want to take part in the polling process and inform all of us as Americans, Ooh, that's not really where we wanted to see that. That's likely an outlier folks. Yeah. Oh, Donald Trump's winning. Shit. That doesn't count. Okay. What are we going to do? Next one. Okay. These were registered voters. What are we going to do? This is 10 points. Holy shit. What are we going to say? Let's just say it's an outlier. Oh damn. That was a fake poll. Oh, those stupid polls. Yeah. I mean, and it might, I'll say this before we get onto another topic on what's, what's, you're starting to see it all come together. It's like, it's like when they see, you know, hurricanes forming in the ocean, right? We're starting to see it now. The polls are shifting to Trump. Now we have Hillary Clinton coming out saying things like, Oh yeah, who's to say Putin won't medal in the election in 2024 again, right? You have others saying like, Ooh, we got to get Trump off the ballot or people saying, let's indict Trump again for this or that let's put gag orders on him. It's all coming together. Now the new thing too, Mike is, Hmm, let's indict the Bidens and let's see if we can get, we can get a Joe Biden off the ticket. We've used him, we've abused him. Now we're getting them out of here. It's all, it's that wave in the ocean. It's that hurricane forming in the ocean. That's what's happening. And I believe that because why, why would Hillary Clinton come out and say, if you're so confident right in the 2024 election, if you're so confident and Trump's an idiot, he's never going to make it again and get rid of them. Why are you now saying, Hmm, maybe Putin will medal in the elections again. Why would you say that? Right. Right. And by the way, this is the same guy that's richer than ever because his country has been able to sell oil at a high rate since Biden's been in office. This is the same country that has had its way with the Ukraine walking in there and taking over land since Biden's been in there. Why would, why would Putin medal in the election to get in and probably in his mind, the nut job of Donald Trump back in office, it may drop a nuke on him. Why would he want Trump back in office? Ask yourself that question. Don't have to, if you have any sense at all, then you don't even have to ask that. Um, so anyway, let's see what the next number of polls start to reveal. Let's see if, let's see if polls stop coming out, Mike, right? Because once you have one that's got Trump winning by double digit, maybe they just start to say, polls are stupid. Polls are for racists. You're homophobic. If you read polls, I mean, we'll see. Or they come out with some poll from the middle of nowhere. That's like Biden up 35 points on Donald Trump. Right, right. This was from registered voters in the white house. Yes. We interviewed seven people and it was six to one, six to one. And the other one we fired, we don't even know who that was. Yeah. So, so let's go to this now. Every once in a while, Mike, I have to do this CNN, right? I go to the cnn .com site. I just got to see what they're finding note newsworthy, noteworthy, whatever you want to say. And honestly, and I've often reported this, I'm often in disbelief at what they aren't reporting. In this example though, I was like, Oh, a few stories down. Here's a story, Mike, why more women are choosing not to have kids. So right away I'm thinking, Oh my gosh, these are the most unlikable people, the most anti traditional family structure people ever. They probably don't want to have a relationship at all. They don't want to ever have true, you know, intimacy with anybody cause they just can't do it. They're just nasty. They're mostly on, you know, just awful. These lots, so many of these people. So I go on to read a little bit of this and you know, this is, this is someone named Diana Volek who, who never, who was never someone who dreamed of becoming a mother, right? And these are just some of the reasons given. They don't want the responsibility of being a parent. They fear a lack of support. They like their life as it is. They're still judged for being child free. So so even when they don't choose to have children, right? So I'm like looking at this and then suddenly I go, wait a second. This was published at midnight, uh, basically Sunday or Monday, you know, September 25th. That's that's now as we record editor's note, this story was originally published in August, 2021. Some details such as the ages of those interviewed remain the same as they were when the story first published. So you're telling me right away, I thought, is the Hollywood writers strike? Is it bleeding into CNN now? Cause there aren't enough stories. There aren't enough people to write like modern stories. There's not enough news. They had to pull a story from two years ago to talk about why many women are deciding not to have kids. Like how pathetic is that? How pathetic. This new trend too, of like, it's cool to just say, screw it. I don't want to have a family is the weirdest thing ever. And then we wonder why these people are miserable, right? I mean, again, is parenting easy? I'm a new parent. Mike, you know that you, you parented two girls for, you know, they're what? 25, 22, right? So you've had, you've had 25 years of parenting experience. I've had, you know, almost a year. It's the most enjoyable thing ever. Right? I mean you're finally, it's good not to be selfish. It's good to take care of somebody else and love somebody else. Right. And I'm not saying you don't love your spouse, but your spouse is an adult relationship. You have to have a relationship with a baby, which turns into a toddler, which turns into an adolescent, a young adult like that. There's nothing more special than that. You should want that. Instead it's like, Oh, kids are stupid. I'm going to be so rich. Really weigh me down. Yeah, yeah, sure. Okay. They're going to weigh me down. I want my independence. I don't want to be responsible to another human being. I've got myself to worry about and treat and, and you know, I don't know, a door like I get like, that's fine. I want to see the next story though be why many women are deciding that having a child is rewarding. It can become a very loving, you know, yes, you have to be responsible. Like it just was so gross to me like that. And two years ago, this isn't even news. This is like, Oh my gosh, we got to fill these headlines. What do we get out? Pull that one again. We don't like kids. We don't want anyone, you know, raising children, my God for, you know, I'll say this though, Mike and all seriousness too. Like, yes. Is, is it fun being a college degenerate and booze and all the time and having a blast? Sure it is. We all did it right. I mean, yes, of course it's a fun thing. Is it fun to not care if you can go to bed at 2am or 5am or 5pm? Sure. That's great. But at some point you have to mature as an adult, take your job seriously, take your family seriously and care about things like I always say this, Mike, and this is something I've brought up a million times. Think about being, you know, if you want it, like if you didn't want to have kids, I'm not saying people that can't have kids cause I feel for them. But if you, if you didn't want children, cause you didn't want the responsibility, what do you do in your sixties and seventies with no family? Like that breaks my heart, honestly. Right? Like I, what my relationship with my parents, my wife's with her parents, like it's, it's fun, right? It's, you're a family. You get to do things together and you get to enjoy each other. Who doesn't want that? I just don't get it. Well, there's a lot of people in Washington that actually have spouses and children and grandchildren. And clearly there is not a lot of love and support going on between all of them. Because some of these people, I mean, we know who we're talking about, the Mitch McConnell's, the Joe Biden's, they would not be in front of microphones if people actually cared about them. They would not let those loved ones go through what they go through on a daily basis, unless they have no connection, no personal connection at all. Um, all right. AOC. She's almost the last story of our day, but there's one more after this. So we got a bonus. We do a bonus story here, breaking news. So AOC wins the hypocrisy award mic for this, uh, at least this week, maybe the year on this one decade, this is hilarious. And, um, I'll just set this up for a second. So here she was on CBS's face the nation. And, um, she was discussing president Biden's plan to visit the Michigan auto workers on Tuesday. So host of CBS's face, the nation, Margaret Brennan points out a couple of interesting facts about AOC and her selection of vehicles. So let's go ahead and play that. Yup.
Monitor Show 19:00 09-12-2023 19:00
"With Bloomberg, you get the story behind the story, the story behind the global birth rate, behind your EV battery's environmental impact, behind sand, yeah, sand, you get context, and context changes everything. Go to Bloomberg .com to get context. I was the former Arkansas governor as well as the 2024 Republican presidential candidate, Asa Hutchinson, talking to our very own Kaylee Lyons. This is Bloomberg.
Why Election Integrity Needs to Be a Priority at the RNC
"I'm going to play cut 16. Then Tyler, the floor is yours. 16 Asa Hutchinson says RNC rules will prevent Donald Trump from being the nominee. Then I'll let you go play cut 16. And over a year ago, I said that Donald Trump was morally disqualified from being president again, as a result of what happened on January 6th, more people are understanding the importance of that, including conservative legal scholars who says he may be disqualified under the 14th amendment from being president again as a result of the insurrection. This is something that could disqualify him under our rules and under the constitution. And so obviously I'm not going to support somebody who's been convicted of a serious felony or who has this is disqualified under our constitution and that's consistent with RNC rules. Tyler Boyer, very popular take in Arkansas. So, uh, so I will tell you this. So this happened at the RNC. There's two, two big issues. The rules are what are the bylaws of the RNC. So anytime that you hear this, people use the term RNC rules, those are the bylaws. So that's what governs the RNC. Those can only be changed in a certain amount of time. And so the way that's been laid out for how we nominate a president has been laid out. And it's been the same for basically for a long, long time with minor changes here and there. And so no one can change those rules at this point, moving forward. Now there are rules that aren't get it, get it established at the convention. That's a totally different deal. So right now, Ronna, so part of the reason why a lot of people like, you know, explain to me why you think Ronna isn't the one, right? Ronna McDaniel, Romney McDaniel. Well, you can always tell how good a chair is by who she selects as her chairs for these committees. Right? So the current chair for the RNC committee, you actually interacted with in Washington not too long ago. He was in the audience, absolutely dislikes us, because he's a, he's a toll rhino. His name is Jeff Kent. He's the chair of the rules committee right now. He is an absolute hates Trump, hates conservatives, you know, loathes conservatives from the state of Washington. And he's the chair of the rules committee. So there is some substantial concern that who becomes the chair of the rules committee for the convention, for the convention rules is also going to be bad. Because if it was a guy like Jeff Kent, he's like Asa,

It's nummy. I want vanilla. I want vanilla. Here comes Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks, welcome to the program. By my calendar, it is Thursday, August 24th. I have as my guest, our friend Kevin McCullough. Some of you know him as vote Stradamus. Some of you know him as Kevin McCullough. And yet he's the same person. Kevin, welcome. Hey, Eric. Good to see you. This is a big day, a very, very big day, a day that should live in infamy because Donald Trump is having to report to a courthouse today. It's a staggering thing. Some of my friends had to have their mug shots taken yesterday. These American heroes who were really trying to make sure that we had a fair election last time. And by the way, we didn't. And of course, last night there was the Republican debate. I want to say that with air quotes. It's kind of like whatever that was last night on Fox News. And then Trump, brilliantly, as usual, because he is just a master at this, did had a conversation with Tucker Carlson at the same time as the debates starring Asa Hutchinson, who? That's correct. Asa Hutchinson. So so, Kevin, let's let's go to it. I didn't have the stomach. I did not have the stomach. I don't have the stomach to watch things like that debate last night. So I saw a bunch of clips. It was really, to my mind, pathetic, actually, to see people like Mike Pence and Nikki Haley and Chris Christie presenting a view of the world that died in 1986.
A highlight from Trump v. the Others
"We get it. You're busy. You don't have time to waste on the mainstream media. That's why Salem News Channel is here. We have hosts worth watching, actually discussing the topics that matter. Andrew Wilkow, the next D 'Souza, Brandon Tatum, and more. Open debate and free speech you won't find anywhere else. We're not like the other guys. We're Salem News Channel. Watch any time on any screen for free 24 -7 at snc .tv and on local now channel 525. at preggertopia .com I'm not going to say that George Strait automatically means that I'm here, but it's a good signal. Mark Davis in for Dennis. A certain Texas twang coming from George, if not from me, but a certain Texas flavor when I am here and it is always a joy to be here. Mark Davis from 660 AM, the answer where I am the happy morning host. And boy, was I happy to be here this morning. Happy being a relative term. It was demanding for everybody because I'm here in central time talking to the West Coast crew out there in Pragerland where everybody was working really late between radio and the Salem News Channel. Just fantastic coverage last night, post debate, all kinds of opinions flying thick and fast. So I'm just really enormously pleased to be here in one of my frequent fill -ins. It's always a joy to be here for Dennis. And you can follow me on Twitter or X or Guacamole or whatever they're calling that thing these days, at Mark Davis, M -A -R -K Davis. And the best way to get ahold of us, of course, is the phone lines that are used in the show every day. 1 -8 -Praeger -776, 1 -8 -Praeger -776. Again, I'm Mark Davis here in the big bustling DFW. And wherever you are, I have some things I need to know from you. You ready? And what I'm gonna do is put some of it in question form. Most of my obvious offering is to get your thoughts and ask the blanket question. What did you think of the two big things that you could see last night? One of them was the debate on a stage in Milwaukee. And the other one was seen by perhaps 10 times more people. I mean, are we at 200 million? At some point, everyone in America, if not around the world, will have seen Trump on Tucker. And we'll talk a little bit about whether it was smart for Trump to do Tucker instead of the debate. It certainly wasn't dumb, it certainly didn't hurt him. Because after all, as we've learned by now, nothing hurts him, at least not yet. And by the way, every candidate on the stage last night, every candidate on the stage last night, dreams of having a bump, having a boost like Trump will get today from another arraignment. This time under the aggressive thumb of Fannie Willis in Fulton County in Atlanta, Georgia. He will turn himself in at some point and you will then almost be able to palpably sense the fundraising boost, the poll boost. Here is the truth of the Trump poll numbers. There's something we know, but there's something numerical we don't know. Again, one eight Prager 776, one eight Prager 776. Talk about Trump's decision not to be on that debate stage. And then we'll talk about everybody that was on that debate stage. Cuz it was a fascinating night for Vivek, a so -so night for DeSantis. A really good night for Tim Scott, a surprisingly, momentarily at least interesting night for Mike Pence. Nikki Haley did great, but did she get enough Mike time? Chris Christie, that New Jersey bully boy thing, that just gets really old, really fast. And Doug Burgum and Asa Hutchinson were there as well, which is about the old, I got nothing bad to say about these guys. I've got nothing bad to say about these guys. Hutchinson was an okay governor of Arkansas, really needs to be awakened on some of the gender clarity necessities. Doug Burgum seems like a wonderful guy, and what a tough nut, keyword nut. Who plays basketball the night before a debate? Who does something that has even a remote injury risk? My colleague Mike Gallagher and I were talking, and he said, if I'm on the debate stage the following day, I'm putting myself in lockdown. I'm gonna be in bed, in some type of pneumatic bubble. Nothing will get to me, but so that I don't rip open my Achilles tendon. Which he did, so he had to crutch himself onto the stage. And I don't wanna be cynical enough to say that this strikes me as debate theater and that it was faked. I don't believe that, I don't wanna be that guy, I don't wanna be that cynical, but I will be this judgmental. How dumb is it to do something the night before a debate that can hurt you? So of course, I know driving on the highway can hurt you and da, da, da, da. So I have all kinds of hot takes on how I think everybody did. I'm gonna frame it in terms of what I expected versus how they did. And then we'll talk about what I expected from Trump on Tucker. I expected it to be stratospherically good, and it was. So we have specific Trump on Tucker observations, and we have specific debate participation observations. And it all takes place against this glorious, fascinating backdrop of late August, 2024. Here we are, we are still September, October, November. So we're still four and a half months before anybody votes for anything. Change is still possible, but how plausible is it? How many times have you heard people say, yeah, in this particular year, by this point, Newt Gingrich was in the lead? Yeah, in this particular year, Rudy Giuliani was in the lead. Well, guess what was not going on when Newt, obviously, neither gentleman ever became president or ever will, it seems, for multiple reasons. There was no Trump, nobody had a 50 point lead. It was just wide open, it was five or six or eight or 10 or 14 or 17 people all running now. Trump is the alpha dog, the king of the hill. There is nothing that has dented his support yet. I will tell you the one thing, I wouldn't even say might, I'd say the only thing that can, the only thing that can, and I'll do that here in a second. In fact, probably got to get to that first. 18 Prager 776, 18 Prager 776. And again, my name, Mark Davis, follow me on Twitter, X, whatever you want to call it. I can't say X, it's Twitter to me, I don't know, I'm an old fart, what can I say? At Mark Davis, and I'll take a look at those during the break. But the best way to get ahold of us, of course, with your thoughts, 776. 18 Prager Okay, I do have a fresh column in the Fort Worth Star Telegram, I'm proud to write for the Star Telegram and the McClatchy newspaper chain and Newsweek and Town Hall, but the thing I did an immediate, I pretty well do mean immediate, turnaround reaction column for was the Star Telegram. So if you go to star -telegram .com and look at opinions, find me, Mark Davis, there is my column that talks about how Vivek and Pence and Tim Scott helped themselves. I mean, the only people who did, but they did. But the enduring question, the enduring question is, can anybody catch Trump? Is that even possible? So if we start with the premise that they say anything is possible, not anything, okay? Asa Hutchinson, Doug Burgum, or Will Hurd winning the nomination is as close to not possible as the English language permits, okay? But let's just say that in these turbulent times, where almost everything seems volatile, it was volatility that kind of lofted Trump in 2016. There were a lot of frustrations, there he was, he seemed anti -establishment, he caught the wind of that in the sales of so many Americans. The timing was just, it was perfect for Trump. Now, eight years, next month, wow, he and Melania came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower. In a way, it seems like yesterday, in a way, it seems like 100 years ago. But anyway, everybody knows him now. And the love for him and hatred of him are both baked in so solid, so two things are true at the same time. With Trump as the nominee, you're going to get two things, guaranteed two things. The love for him and the devotion to him and the desire to flip a huge middle finger to the establishment that now pursues and persecutes him, that will be on fire with energy. The other thing that's gonna be on fire with energy, every Democrat, Biden could be actually dead and on the ticket, and Democrats will crawl on broken glass and walk through fire to deliver another loss to Trump. So that will be in furious force. So which of those forces, which of those phenomena is greater? I don't know, and neither do you. Are there risks to making Trump your nominee? There sure are. But are there risks that a whole lot of people seem totally willing to take? Yes, indeedy. So what is the one thing that might erode Trump support? And I'm not saying it will, but it's the only thing that can. I'll tell you next, and take your calls next, 1 -8 Prager 776. Mark Davison for Dennis. The Dennis Prager Show. Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere. What sets these companies apart, and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for AmFed Coin and Bullion, my choice for buying precious metals. When you buy precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests. So many companies use gimmicks to take advantage of inexperienced gold and silver buyers. Be cautious of brokers offering free gold and silver, or brokers that want to sell you overpriced collectible coins, claiming they appreciate more than gold and silver. What about hidden commissions and huge markups? Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed always have your back. I trust this man, that's why I mentioned him by name. Nick's been in this industry over 42 years, and he's proud of providing transparency and fair pricing to build trusted relationships. If you're interested in buying or selling, call Nick Grovitch and his team at AmFed Coin and Bullion, 800 -221 -7694, americanfederal .com, americanfederal .com. So, whether you are watching, or listening, or both, we appreciate it. Mark Davison for Dennis here on Debate Night. I was gonna say morning after, depending on your time zone, the day after, what do we think? I'm gonna take some calls here and sort of intermingle my specific thoughts about how each candidate did. And of course, you know what the short part is, how Trump did with Tucker? Simply superb. It was just vintage Trump for 47 minutes and it was awesome. It was just a reminder of how great he is and why everybody wants him back, or nearly everybody wants him back. I will tell you, not to be a curmudgeon about this, but I still think he should have been on the debate stage. I totally understand his logic. Why should I? They're 50 points behind me. I don't need to show up for this. I totally get it. He's right about that. It did not hurt him to not be there, but it was a missed opportunity. There are millions of people for whom the last 10 times they heard Trump talk, it was all about Jack Smith, and Fannie Willis, and Alvin Bragg, and this persecution, and that lawsuit, and this vendetta, and that witch hunt, all of which is true. But it can be fatiguing to some folks who are not a junkie for this. And this would have been an opportunity for Trump with a bunch of rivals, and a bunch of pretenders to be sure, and a bunch of people at 0 .5%, and I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. But it would have been him talking about borders. It would have been him talking about crime. It would have been him talking about climate, which by the way, he did with Tucker, but he could have done that too. Not to get greedy, but why not do the debate and then sit down with Tucker tonight? Wouldn't that have worked? So yeah, but it was a statement. I understand it was a statement. It was a positioning statement that says, I don't even need to be on that stage as they all run for who's going to be the last person left when there are two candidates left standing. That is, by the way, what last night's debate was about. It's what the entire campaign is about for everybody not named Trump. At some point in the spring, there'll be two candidates left. One of them will be named Donald Trump, and the other one will not. And everybody wants to be that other person. And forever it looked obvious that it was going to be DeSantis. It doesn't look that way so much right now. Now it could really be the vague. Will that sustain? Is this kind of a flash in the summer pan? I don't know. Your thoughts are welcome. 18 Prager 776. As I get ready to go to the phones, here's the thing. Everybody, I get asked this all the time. Is there anything that could change the calculus? Anything where Trump just doesn't have that 50 point lead anymore? Because while we're talking math, here's what's undeniably true. Trump can win the nomination, can breeze to the nomination without poaching one single supporter from anybody on that stage last night. Obviously, he could do it tomorrow. DeSantis, just to pick somebody or the vague, let's go with DeSantis for the moment. He needs to poach half of the Trump poll numbers. He's got to go get half of those people. Half of the people saying we want Trump, half of the 50 some percent, if not more, who say we want Trump, who say that now in August, have to stop saying that by the time people are really voting in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, and Nevada, etc, etc. So what is the one way that happens? And this is a half court shot, maybe a full court shot. And that is that some of the poll emotions right now, some of it, most of it is we want this guy to be president. We loved him then, we love him now, we want this guy to be president. You know, the usual earth logic that people use in expressing support for a candidate. But some of it, and it'll have to be a lot of it. And I don't know that it is. But certain x percentage of it has to be folks who may or may not require Trump to be their next president. But they are furious at what's being done to him. It is a show of support. I mean, why do you think the poll numbers will go up after he is arraigned today in Atlanta? Is it because a bunch of people will just look at issues around America and decide, oh, he is my guy? Some may, but most of the poll bursts and the fundraising bursts that happen after each continuing litany of indictments is people saying, oh, hell no. It's what I call the Jason Whitlock effect. Jason Whitlock is the wonderful broadcaster, blogger, who was on the Tucker one, I think might have been after the first indictment or the second one, I lose track. Jason Whitlock was on with Tucker when Tucker was on Fox and said, I don't even know what I think about Trump. I'm halfway with him, halfway not. I like some of what he does, some of it not. I don't know. But tonight I'm hardcore MAGA. Tucker, tonight I am hardcore MAGA, Jason Whitlock said. And it was as a statement of revulsion at what was being done to him. Now, if that's a bunch of Trump support, cuz here it is in one nutshell. By the time we get to, we go through Christmas, we go through the holidays, everybody digests their holiday meals. And then we all get rolling in January of 2024. And millions of Republicans go, whoa, okay, now it's what's always been serious. But now it's time, time with a capital T. It's not about whether we don't like Jack Smith or whether we think 2020 was rigged or whether we're just not about anything else. Other than it's about one thing, one thing, who beats Biden? Who gives us the best chance of beating Biden? And if the similar numbers of people who think so today think that that's Trump, and by the way, it may well be, then nothing will change. All these campaigns, all the DeSantis's, all the Viv Hanks, all the everybody's, I don't wanna say it'll be for naught, but it will not bear fruit. It will not bear fruit. If, however, and it's funny because right now we got the sort of the fresh angst, the renewed emotion and determination of what will happen after Trump is dragged before yet another tribunal for yet another non -crime. And we can talk about this some today if you want. There's really only one thing out of every single one of these stupid persecution prosecutions, all these indictments, all these things. Really, they only got him on one thing. There's one thing that he just really should have done differently. And that's the handling of those stupid documents. Give back the stupid documents. If you do that, then that's not even a problem. But all this election related stuff is insane. He thinks he got screwed. And guess what? So do I. Guess what? So do most of you. We don't get to believe that. And if we're him, we don't get to act on that and make phone calls and secure meeting space and tweet to somebody to watch a TV show, all of which has been criminalized by these lunatic prosecutors. But in January of 2024, it's not gonna be about that anymore. No matter how we feel about that. No matter how we feel and no matter how resentful we are of that and how much we wanna stick with him. And I mean, in that regard, if millions of people say, God bless you, sir, God bless you, we love your presidency. We want those policies back, but the damage seems to have been done.
The Real Math Equation Behind Primary Races
"Don't disagree with me a lot. It makes me think about stuff. Um, says, Listen, Dan, you know, the Iowa caucuses are five months away. You're acting like this is over. No, I'm not. I'm speaking to you as a practical conservative who's run for office and loss. The reason I'm suggesting to you that people who are not registering the polls drop out is because there's an opportunity cost camp and others. You go, please listen to me, folks. there's a cost here. I get it. If you haven't run for office, sometimes you think, Well, what's the big deal? Let him stay in the race. not You're hurting anyone. No, they are. Because when you have 10 or 15 people in the race, even guys going to run for office. You're going to run for office. It's a matter of fact, here's the problem. These donors, a lot of these donors have a fixed budget politics. If you max out to a PAC, the local committee and your candidate and you're done, that's it. We don't have you for the general. So, whereas I agree with you that primaries are a good thing, primaries with what call I would at this point, waste of time candidates, not that they're not decent people. I don't know them. It's not a moral judgment of them. It's a simple math equation. There are a couple of things that matter in politics to in politics. Many press coverage and volunteers, all of those things are looted when you have people in the race who absolutely cannot win. I get that. I was months away. I'm really sorry. There is zero and I mean zero chance Asa Hutchinson is to going win the presidency. Zero. Not zero zero
A highlight from Bidens Disastrous Visit To Hawaii & Are Covid Mandates Coming Back?
"This is your source for breaking news and what to make of it all. This is the Mike Gallagher Show. So, this is surrender week for Donald Trump, as well as the 18 others charged with racketeering in Georgia. These indictments actually are solidifying Trump's support. Pretty much everything that NBC News and the New York Times have told you about the war in Ukraine is a lie. Democrats only blame climate change for their own incompetence. Here's what really happened. Now, from the relieffactor .com studios, here's Mike Gallagher. Oh my gosh. I don't even know where to begin. I don't even know how to start this hour. I am reeling from everything that's coming at us. And if I feel this way, I can only imagine how you feel. The American people are dumbfounded at what we're witnessing north, south, east, west. Look around at the condition of this country. We got to get this country back. And I don't know how we do it. We got a commander in chief who yesterday mumbled through a disastrous speech in Lahaina where authorities fear a thousand people are still missing from these wildfires. In Hawaii, not Ukraine, Maui, United States of America. One of our states, the president shuffled over to meet with Maui wildfire victims. And you know what he said to them? I had a fire in my house once too. And of course, being a high profile guy, the fire is well documented. It was a small kitchen fire. And Joe Biden, I mean, first went on about the tragic passing of his first wife and daughter in a 1970s car accident. Now, I know about loss. I've lost people. I can't imagine me going to your loved one's funeral and saying, hey, you know what? My wife died too. I mean, this man is out of his mind. This guy, and I don't think we can give him a pass. I get, I'm really over saying, well, he's senile. Well, he's senile. No, maybe he's just an awful human being. Maybe he's a narcissistic bad guy. This guy's a narcissist. I saw this clip. Derek played this clip for me. And I said, Derek, stop it. Stop, stop faking me out with videos. He said, Mike, I'm telling you that he said it. I said, Derek, he did not say this. This is a comedian. This is an actor. This, you bear in mind when I play this clip that he had a small kitchen fire that was contained. And that small kitchen fire is what he wanted to tell the grieving people of Hawaii. They have almost a thousand people they can't account for. And this is what the commander in chief said when he was almost forced, I guess, to finally go visit Hawaii and show his support. I don't want to compare difficulties, but we have a little sense, Jill and I, what it's like to lose a home. Years ago, now, 15 years ago, I was in Washington doing Meet the Press. It was a sunny Sunday and lightning struck at home on a little lake that's outside of our home and on a lake, a big pond and hit a wire and came up underneath our home into the heating ducts, the air conditioning duct. Make a long story short, almost lost my wife, my 67 Corvette and my cat. I give you my word that actually happened. That was actually a speech that came out of his mouth. If you're living in Hawaii right now, you've got to be going out of your minds. In fact, I saw the video of people lining the streets, giving in the middle of finger and saying blank you as his motorcade arrived. And what's the media going to do about this one? Hey, news media, you're going to you're going to crucify him the way you spent four years crucifying Donald Trump? Of course not. Of course not. And you know what? You want to know what really sickens me? For all of the bombast and the bluster and the braggadocious persona of Donald Trump, he would never, ever do something like that. He would never denigrate a grieving community like that. By bragging about his small kitchen fire 15 years ago, you've got to be kidding me. You think this guy's going to be on the ballot next year? No way, not a chance. There's a lot of things I'm not sure about, but I am I guarantee if he's in this, if he's willing to say things like that today. And again, don't just give him the pass. Don't just say he's senile. I'm sorry, this is rough and I'm going to have to apologize for what I'm about to say, but this man is rotten to the core. He is a rotten, awful, narcissistic human being. And I know that's harsh, but hey, who cares? That pales in comparison to what they said about the 45th president. And what they're going to say about him on that debate stage tomorrow night. And you know the worst part about the debate tomorrow night? There won't be anybody to refute the crap they're going to throw at Trump. Now, if they're smart, they'll barely mention Trump. I suspect they're not because they're not smart and they can't resist it. They can't resist bagging on the guy. So when they do and when they attack him, there won't be anybody to defend him. You think Brett Bear is going to defend him? You think Martha Macau, you think Asa Hutchinson is going to say anything? Maybe Vivek, maybe Vivek Ramaswamy. I don't know. I am so fired up today and I feel like we are. I just got a text message, Mike, I'm having the same Tuesday you're having. We've all stepped into the twilight zone. Well, you know the good news? I'm normal, relatively speaking, you're normal. We got a lot of us normals who are going to get this country back and we must. Welcome aboard. It's Tuesday, an epic week, August the 22nd, 2023.

I want a bunch of calls. Honest to gosh, give me your honest reaction to Joe Biden traveling to Hawaii and talking about his wife's car accident where she was killed in the 70s and the kitchen fire that was contained 15 years ago. That was how he felt he needed to comfort the people of Hawaii by. I gotta, tell me you think he's gonna be on the ticket next year. There's no way. 800 -655 -MIKE, 800 -655 -6453. Hope you join us.

"Back to the mid -80s. Everybody wants to rule the world, little tears for fears. Half of that outfit, Roland Orzeball, is 62 today. This is a theme from the Dennis Miller talk show, I believe, on HBO. Everybody wants to rule the world. I don't remember that. I don't remember the Dennis Miller show, really, on HBO. He had an HBO show. There was a Dennis Miller window there. I loved his stand -up. He was so self -aware about his crazy overuse of vocabulary. I think he had a book or a special called Citizen Arcane, with a reference to his over -the -top scholarly references that even if you only got 80 percent of them, you were still well -served. He had a radio show for a while, you remember the Dennis Miller show? Of course I do. With Westwood One. And then he was on, didn't he have a stint as an NFL announcer, of all things? That was a dumb idea. Quite the Renaissance man. Quite the Renaissance man. No, I love the guy. Love him. Hey, listen, first of all, who is on the debate stage tomorrow night, and who's not? I told you, Asa Hutchinson, except he's not going to be on the debate stage. I thought, well, yes, he is, and I don't want to argue with you. And then Larry was for 10 minutes, or he actually wasn't. Larry thought he was for 10 minutes, and then had to take that one back. That's a shame. So it looks like he's not there. He didn't make it, because Seb Gorka announced last night he's there. And then Carrie Lake, who I'm going to interview, I think, tomorrow as a preview of the debate. Carrie Lake said, I just talked to Larry Elder, and he said the RNC is refusing to allow Larry to be on the stage, even though he's met the donor threshold, he's in 1 percent in three polls, but the RNC, one of the polls is a Trump -affiliated poll, I guess. What does that mean? I think they need all of the polls to be like Gallup and Reuters and NBC, which may have their own biases, obviously. There may be no such thing as an objective poll, but there may be a bit of a blackout rule for any poll that is specifically tied to a candidate. The debate stage is better with Larry on it. It's a waste of time with Asa Hutchinson on it, but it looks like that's what you got. But Doug Burgum is there. So listen, we're all right there. At least he's there. I'm hanging on. I'm going to be hanging on to his every word. Every word from Doug. It's terrifying. Not that he gets Doug Burgum. He seems like a good dude, a good governor, but just why, why, why, why? Well, let me prepare everybody for tomorrow night. Let me warn you, because I just thought about this, and it's absolutely going to be true. You know why the debate is going to be so maddening for us? They're going to bag on Trump and there ain't nobody to defend him. There is no, there will not be any counter. They'll be able to lie about him. They'll say things, I guarantee you, and it's going to make us all crazy. They're going to say he incited the insurrection. They're going to say... Who will do that? Chris Christie, but anybody else? Well, but when Chris Christie says it, there won't be any counter to that. Nobody's going to refute the anti -Trump narrative at all.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 07/24/23
"People are really getting engaged in the culture wars with movies. I went to a movie, by the way, over the weekend, saw Mission Impossible last night. Was I right? Oh, wow. Isn't it just the greatest? That really wasn't two hours and 45 minutes long. No, it flew. It felt like a half hour. Yep, yep. But people are upset about the Barbie movie, because evidently Barbie's a feminist. People are upset about the new Snow White movie, because Snow White is Hispanic. We've got to pick the hill we want to die on. I don't want to start a Monday by infuriating people by saying we've got bigger fish to fry than Barbie, but we do have bigger fish to fry than Barbie. However, the culture is reflecting sort of a radical left -leaning ideology, where Americans are saying enough is enough is enough. That's why sound of freedom right now. AMC movie theaters, which is where I almost always go, there were accusations that AMC, the chain, was purposefully sabotaging sound of freedom by the air conditioning systems not working and digital. Mark, I've got reports of that all over the country. What do theaters want more than anything else? They want to make money. No theater wants a bunch of hacked off consumers in the lobby saying it's 85 in the theater. I tend to agree, but on the other hand, would you really find it crazy that they're trying to stifle a movie that is perceived as conservative? It isn't a conservative movie. Anti -child trafficking. Thank you. And it's well done. Well, so anyway, last night the CEO of AMC, because they're in a heap of trouble, they are on the verge of bankruptcy apparently. And I remember the movie theater, the guy that runs the chain based out of Dallas, once was, he gave us some assistance with our fallen officer fund years ago. And I forget the guy's name. Is it Leroy? The guy, is it Cinemark? Is Cinemark in Dallas? I don't know. I think the Cinemark movie theater chain is based in Dallas and the guy that runs it is there. And a great guy had a meeting with him and he's a real pro -America, good, good Texan. Is it Sean Gamble? They are based in Plano. Sean Gamble of Cinemark. Does that sound ring about? Well, and that's not who I met with. The guy was - How about Leroy Mitchell? Leroy Mitchell. That's who I met with. And he's a great guy. And Cinemark, but the biggie is AMC. Well, last night, the CEO of AMC sent out a tweet that said, we're in dire straits here. COVID, now the stupid strike. It really threatens to, and so they're going to have to sell more stock. And I don't know that whole world very well, a short sale, whatever they call it, and they're going to start to get more. They have to dilute really the stock value in order to stay afloat. In any event, the AMC chairman and president in sending out this notification called on the top movies of the year that are doing so well for them. And he mentioned Sound to Freedom. There you go. So that kind of validates what you're saying. Hey, they want to make money. They want butts in the seats. And apparently they have them because over the weekend, you're ready, Barbie and Unbelievable, 155 million, Oppenheimer, 80 million. In number three, Sound to Freedom. And listen, Mission Impossible has been out for a couple of weeks now. Sound to Freedom made more than Mission Impossible this weekend just gone by. 20 versus 19 million. How much? 20 million? 20 versus 19. And it just continues to rock. It's well past 100 million. It's crazy. And it's not just a movie, it's a cause, which has brought some disparagement. Because at the end of the movie, if you go to the end of the credits, there's Jim Caviezel saying, this is vital. Please go and bring somebody, pay it forward, pay so that maybe some people can see it who can't afford to see it, which I'm all about. And so the detractors and haters have said, well, a lot of people are just buying 47 tickets and maybe those are empty seats. A, I don't know. B, I doubt it. And C, I don't care because it shows a willingness to support the film as a commodity and it deserves to be supported. The radical leftists are so dumb, they think we can't figure out that the only reason you're pushing back against a child sex trafficking movie is because you don't like the actor. You don't like Jim Caviezel and you don't like Tim Ballard because these guys are hardcore conservatives. Incidentally, have you played the clip of Jason Aldean at his concert over the set? No, I know that he tweeted ahead and said, listen, people can criticize music, but this goes too far. It's baseless. It's dangerous. I'm writing a star telegram column about this specifically. I'm going to have to plug this in. What did he have to say? He said between songs, he said, it's been a long week and I've seen a lot of stuff. He says, I've seen a lot of stuff suggested on this, suggesting on that. As the large audience cheered loudly, Aldean said, what I am is a proud American. I love our country and I want to see it restored to what it once was before this bull blank started happening to us. I love my country. I love my family and I'll do anything to protect that. The crowd then exploded into an uproar of chants, yelling USA, USA. And who didn't know this was coming? First big record for him in 2005, Hicktown, a flyover country. The guys had all kinds of records that speak to bucolic America. So Sheryl Crow says, Hey, I'm from a small town. This is neither small town nor American. Well, Sheryl Crow's roots are in Kennett, Missouri, in the beautiful Missouri boot heel. Let's go there. Let's talk to the locals and see how many of those folks agree with Jason Aldean or how many think agree with her that he's promoting violence. And then this kills me. Jason Isbell, who's so good, such a brilliant performer and songwriter. Hey, hey, Jason Aldean, I got a challenge for you. Write a song by yourself because he didn't write a small town. Like a lot of other people, he sings songs largely written by others. So here's Jason Isbell mocking him. You want to be an artist? Be an artist. Write your own song. I'll wait. Well, maybe let's wait for Jason Isbell to realize there are some other people who largely perform the work done by others. Does he want to bag on Linda Ronstadt next? Maybe he'd like to go after those pretenders names. What are their names again? Oh, yes, Sinatra and Elvis. What a weird, baseless, sloppy attack. This is a total win. God bless Jason Aldean and God bless that wonderful, wonderful record. Try that in a small town. These folks are revealing who they truly are. They don't like the idea of people being able to protect themselves. They don't like the idea of somebody saying we take care of one another. And we got guns and we know how to use them. So that's what they don't like. And to you and me and to most normal Americans, that's a message that resonates. That's America. Sorry, we ain't the UK. We're not France. We are a Second Amendment believing country, but the left, the Sheryl Crowes, the Isbells, I guess those folks just hate that message. Meanwhile, we're looking closer to closer to 2024 to see who's going to get us out of the mess, who can get us out from Washington, DC. This Harris, I don't know if you saw this, Harris -Harvard poll came out. The Harvard -Harris poll, typically pretty reliable. It was released Friday. If the 2024 Republican presidential primary were held today, of course Trump would pretty substantially, 45 to 40%. Now there's 16 % undecided. I'm back and forth on whether Trump should appear in a couple of weeks at the first debate. I think he should. I've been saying it doesn't make any sense for him. You know why he needs to be there? Tell me your reason. I'll give you mine. Good. Let me start. If you believe any of this data, his likability factor is just below that of radio talk show hosts and used car salesmen. He's way down there, right there with Biden. Biden and Trump both have an unlikeability factor, but here's the bottom line. To normal people, Trump's likable. To normal people who aren't poisoned by their Trump hatred and their Trump derangement syndrome, when you see him in a setting like that, you do like him. And I think it's important he's going to have to get that number back up. He's going to start having to win over independence. And one way to do it is to have a solid performance of the debates. Now you go. You're 1000 % correct. Let's begin with the fact that Trump is right when he says, why do I even have to show up? Why should I be taking a tax from Asa Hutchinson and, you know, people who have 2 % of the polls. I don't even need to be there. Let everybody sort it out. And then somebody come after me. He's right about that. However, you are completely correct. There is a benefit to being there, to reminding people how great he can be in that venue, to maybe duke it out a little bit with DeSantis, see how that goes, see how other people engage him, the way they address him and engage him may simply solidify his front runner status. And finally, this is sort of in harmony with what you've said, any opportunity to be on a TV stage with millions of people watching and be likable, be skilled, be quick, be sharp is nothing but a good thing. It's all good. It's all really, really good. You know, I, you mentioned the funeral for Stu Epperson and there were a lot of movers and shakers, Stu Epperson, of course, the co -founder of the Salem Media Group, who passed away this week in Winston -Salem. And I went to the funeral on Friday and many thanks to Carl Jackson for filling in and doing a great job. And there were a lot of key broadcasters there and a lot of big time Republican operatives. I'm not going to mention any names, but I had a chance to talk to people in the green room and sort of, you know, as we were meeting the family and expressing our condolences. And it was a gathering of a lot of people who loved this man's magnificent life and what a life he led.
Tucker Carlson Moderates Train Wreck GOP Showdown
"Glenn Beck and his people put together, really, a fascinating day. Number one, to score Tucker Carlson as your moderator is quite the score given, obviously, the hottest topic in political news right now and what his future is going to be. We have some news on that, actually, as well. So, he moderated this thing where all of the candidates who decided to participate, some of who now have seen their life flash in front of their eyes, Asa Hutchinson, Tim Scott. I got to see those two. Mike Pence. I got to see a little bit of Pence. Well, that's the funny thing because during the day I'm like, why is Mike Pence trending? Like, I had no idea. And then I saw one clip and I'm like, oh my goodness. I mean, call 911 on all three of them. Those were the first three out of the box. Tim Scott, Asa Hutchinson and Mike Pence. Call 911 now. Call the fire department now. They all three got so scorched. It has a defibrillator. Break it out. I almost had to do this at some point watching it because it was so brutal. Tucker is so good as a moderator, it's stupid. That's how good he is. And he was looking right at you. He will not let you get away with a non -answer. And his positions, like them or not, at least for that audience and most of middle America and most of the people who are going to watch that, he's totally in line with. So, I mean, not that Asa Hutchinson needed a lot of help. That campaign needed a lot of help. But I mean, the charade is over. I mean, just pack it in tonight and say, thank you very much. It's been a fun ride and I'm going to go back and whatever. Pence, the same thing. I mean, Pence glared at Tucker a couple of times in those exchanges like he wanted to kill him. I mean, he wanted to kill him. Well, there was one point where he laughed at his face. Like Tucker laughed at Pence's face. I mean, he just, I can't tell you how, it was almost, I don't know, it was almost hard to watch at parts. It was so brutal. I mean, in such a good way. It was so brutal. With Tim Scott asking him about Ukraine, Asa Hutchinson, he comes out of the box and asks him about the bill he vetoed on gender reassignment surgery. And he just will not let you off the hook. He will not, and Pence, the January 6th discussion and the Ukraine discussion. brutal. It was
A highlight from ndrew Tate Talk and DeSantis' Missed Turning Point with Raheem Kassam and Paul Manafort
"Hey everybody, today on the Charlie Kirk Show, I give you my take on the viral conversation Tucker Carlson had with Andrew Tate. Paul Manafort also joins the program. And we talk with Raheem Kassam about Ron DeSantis and the state of the 2024 race. Support our program charliekirk .com slash support. Email us as always freedom at charliekirk .com. That's freedom at charliekirk .com. Get involved with Turning Point USA at tpusa .com. That is tpusa .com. Buckle up everybody. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. The center of the conservative movement will be Saturday, Sunday in West Palm Beach, Florida. President Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, Dan Bongino, Steve Bannon, Josh Hawley, J .D. Vance, Vivek Ramaswamy, Governor Asa Hutchinson, Mayor Suarez, and many others. But noticeably absent, we received a decline from Governor DeSantis. And here to make sense of it, Raheem Kassam, Raheem, who is not part of Turning Point, so maybe he can offer kind of an outsider's really kind of clear perspective here. Raheem, what am I missing? Why is why did Governor DeSantis decline our invitation to speak to six thousand grassroots super activists? Well, Charlie, thank you for having me. I'm sorry to have to talk about this issue because I know it's probably a particularly insulting one as far as you're concerned. I almost feel like I should be interviewing you about this. And and, you know, it's one of these things where you got to look like below the surface of this. I know a lot of people were speculating immediately that perhaps Ron DeSantis was worried about getting booed or jeered up on the stage. And my attitude towards that was, well, no, not really. I mean, it's a very welcoming audience. I've been to several of your events that people are never rude or churlish, especially to speakers that have been around on that circuit for years and years, as Governor DeSantis has been. And so I started to sort of think about, you know, what are the other pressures on the Florida governor at the moment that might be causing him to have to kind of park, to put it in a mild sense, snub is probably more more accurate and more representative of the insult that him and his campaign are doling out here towards those those grassroots activists. And what I came down to is this, DeSantis seems to be able to hop on a plane and get to a different part of the country almost every day to fundraise. There's no shortage of it. Yesterday, he was in Wisconsin doing a fundraiser with the Council on Foreign Relations, neoconservative AEI donor who used to give to Rahm Emanuel. And he has time for that. And he has time to go and see his donors in the Hamptons this coming week who are demanding that he explain why his campaign isn't got the momentum that, you know, they all promised it would have, especially if you give me two hundred million dollars, which people have done. And so I think this is probably coming down. Like actually coming down to what the campaign would refer to in newspeak as like scheduling clashes. Right. But what it really means is crisis talk. It's crisis and crunch talks with the donors. It's crisis and crunch talks about Iowa. It's crisis and crunch talks about why he's not making a move in the polls. And unfortunately, I think your event is getting the thin end of the wedge there. Yeah. And again, I don't want to play the victim. We have an amazing lineup here. But Rahim, it's I'm trying to understand the calculus of the DeSantis campaign. It's perplexing to me because you have voters that you have to win over. And by the way, we did a ton of events with Governor DeSantis last fall. Our audience is very fair. I see it completely differently. He if he wants to be the nominee, get in the arena and try to assert dominance. You know, buy a booth, do an influencer reception, try to win over the audience, open up questions. You know, Rahim, it's not just our students that are there. We have hundreds of pastors of mega churches that will be there. We have 500 donors. We have 10 billionaires that will be there. So it's not like there's no donors if that's a big priority. Every major media outlet will be there. 300 influencers will be there. But Rahim, I'm just trying to understand the calculus. And yes, we do consider it a little bit of a snub. And President Trump, to his credit, you know, attending is really something. Does it show you that that there's some sort of a plan that DeSantis has that we have not yet been read into, which is to kind of win the Chamber of Commerce primary first before actually speaking to donors? Because what I can say, Rahim, is what we are receiving from attendees and grassroots, hundreds of messages. People feel insulted that he is not attending this weekend. Yeah, I'm not surprised. I mean, the interesting part of it is that so many people may have been coming along in part to hear from Governor DeSantis. Right. Knowing that you would have and he's been at turning point events before, knowing that you have other presidential candidates up there probably thought like, hey, yeah, this is going to be a good time for me. You know, I've read so much about what's going on in the media or seen him on Fox all the time talking about this, that and the other. But I'd really like to get up close and personal and see, you know, maybe see if he's as awkward as people say he is. Maybe see if, you know, you can disprove some of those things by by meeting with a person, rubbing shoulders, shaking hands, all of the things that go on at political conferences. And to turn your back on that, like you said, this isn't just a student summit. There are there are thousands upon thousands of other leading people in the movement who will be attending your event. And it seems like that, OK. So Reuters today puts out a story that says Iowa is do or die for DeSantis. And this story appeared to be briefed by the DeSantis campaign. At least that's how it read. Right. People who know this world know what those stories tend to look like. And a source close to the campaign said this. Well, yeah, you just talked to the campaign and somebody didn't want to go on the record. So they are themselves now saying we are going to replicate the Ted Cruz strategy of 2016. Now, remember, Ted Cruz won Iowa, but also remember, Ted Cruz did not become the president of the United States. Ted Cruz lost the nomination. Ted Cruz was not the one up there on the debate stage against Hillary Clinton. And thank goodness for that, quite frankly, as much as Ted Cruz is good on some issues, he would have been no way near a candidate as strong as Donald Trump on that stage against Hillary Clinton. And so you look at who he's got behind him, DeSantis, right. Jeff Rowe, Axiom Strategies, that whole Cruz campaign team from back in 2015, 2016, and you go, oh, I see, you're just trying to do a redox. And the reason that they're spending more time fundraising rather than actually campaigning, which would involve turning up at your event, is because the consultant class want their big bucks paid out. What is this? No, finish your thought, please. Well, look, here's the other part of this that I've been saying for months now is that they're not running a populist campaign. They're not populists. The MAGA skin suit is about as much as they have offered to the Republican Party base in recent months. And sometimes it's not even that. They're putting together a new oligarchic establishment Republican donor class. And by the way, they're barely hyped. You can see when he goes to the Dominion Law Lawyers Office to fundraise, you can see when he uses Rahm Emanuel's old backers. You can see time and time and time again, Council on Foreign Relations, all of these guys. That's the team he's putting together. And that's not a populist way of campaigning. And maybe he's telling us something. Maybe he's letting us look. I'm not that much into you. So there's this story. I don't know how accurate it is, Raheem, that there's a kind of a crisis meeting in the Hamptons. Can you fill us in on that? I mean, I saw that you kind of broke that story, added some commentary to it. Yeah, that's right. Look, we were we were following up on a lot of the reporting that was done by Charlie Gasparino on the same issue earlier this week. And I think this story has gone around a little bit around the rumor mills, around the gossip mills. And it just came to a point where somebody was ready to report that out. And that's what that's what Gasparino did. So we pick up on the basis of that using my sourcing, the people I've spoken to. You'd be surprised at how many people down in Florida actually, you know, still still want to I say this as if you're on different sides, but reach out across the aisle of this Republican presidential primary and talk about what's going on and what needs to be fixed and the problems that are manifesting themselves down in Tallahassee at this current point in time. And so, yeah, it looks like at some point over the next few days, DeSantis and perhaps some key members of his team, his inner circle are going to be in Southampton, in the Hamptons in New York, and having to explain to some quite quite peeved donors like, hey, where is our money actually going? Because you have moved in the polls, you've moved downwards in the polls. So what's going on? You know, are we are we going to be supporting you in the future? Tell us what the plan is. And of course, the brief plan back to that is, you know, we're playing the long game. Well, let's get into the let's get into the I want to I want to get into the detail about that. And also just, you know, Trump standing in the party, I got in a little bit of a heated conversation with DeSantis donor the other day, and that's fine, like, he has a right to do that. And he's like, oh, Trump's going to lose the nomination. I don't know one person that's voting for Trump. So, yeah, you live in Aspen, okay, like just you live in Aspen, okay, you live in Aspen.
Donald Trump Calls on Jack Smith to Further Investigate Biden, Clinton
"We're living in a third world country right now. No rigged elections, tremendous, tremendous crime all over the Democrat run that these murderers are running around. They have no fear of prosecution because the D A's aren't doing their jobs. They're going after people like Donald Trump instead. That did nothing wrong. Cut to go. It's no coincidence that these fake charges against me came down the very same day. Evidence revealed Joe Biden, very a crooked president, took a $5 million bribe from Ukraine. Now there's no coincidence whatsoever. And he took plenty more than that. And then Mitt Romney jumps in. He's sort of representing the Chris Christie, Chris Sununu, Asa Hutchinson wing of the Republican Party. It's not really a wing. We're like a feather. We're like a feather out of place.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Talks GOP 2023-24 Debates
"Chairwoman Romney, I want to talk about debates with you. We have a fixed field. Former President Trump, former Vice President Pence just dropped his announcement video. Governor DeSantis is in. Senator Scott is in. Ambassador Haley is in. Former Governor Christie dropped his announcement yesterday. Vivek Ramaswamy has been in for a while. I think those seven will get the 40 ,000 minimum donation. Not sure if Governor Hutchinson will maybe. Doubt Larry Elder will, and he's my colleague. And North Dakota Governor Borgum, I'm not sure he will, and I don't think anyone else will. Do you think the field is fixed at those 10 serious candidates, seven of whom are likely to make the debate stage? Yeah, I think we've got the field pretty settled now as who's getting in. I think everybody understood. If I'm going to have to get a $40 ,000, a $40 ,000 small dollar donor base, I'm going to have to get in before August. So I think that field is mobilized. And I think we've created good criteria. And the reason why we've done this $40 ,000 small dollar donor threshold, one, the Democrats had $60 ,000, but the Democrats have a better ecosystem at small dollar donations. And if our candidate is going to be anywhere near competitive with Joe Biden, they need to start creating this building block towards success. And we need to make sure that they have a small dollar fundraising infrastructure. And that's why we're putting this requirement in. If you can't do this, you really shouldn't be running for president. You're not going to beat Joe Biden. So we're not doing it in a punitive way. We're doing it in a success metric. And if you can't do this to get on the debate stage, you're probably not going to be able to take on the incumbent president of the United States.
Do These GOP Candidates Have Any Real Shot at Beating Trump?
"Think the governor of North Dakota has a path to the White House? Does anybody think Mike Pence has a path to the White House? And incidentally, full disclosure, I like Mike Pence. I know that's heresy. A lot of people are still mad at him over January 6th. I think he is an absolutely good and decent man. I believe he did what he thought was right. And yes, I think it's fair to say he sort of turned against Donald Trump over the events of January 6th, which is very regrettable. But for those of us who watched his four years as President Trump's vice president, you shouldn't have a beef with the guy. Does that mean he'll be the 47th president of the United States? Uh -uh. I don't think it does. Does he think so? In other words, do you think he thinks he has a path? Do you think Asa Hutchinson thinks he has a shot? Do you believe the governor of North Dakota realistically believes he can be the next president of the United States? And I'm not trying to trick you here. That's not a rhetorical question. I mean that literally. Do they think they've got a path?
Former VP Mike Pence Makes His 2024 Run for President Official
"A big week politically. Mike Pence is in. You ready? You ready for former Vice President Mike Pence taking on Donald Trump, his old boss? The North Dakota governor is in. Asa Hutchinson is in. Tim Scott is in. Larry Elder is in. The field continues to grow and inevitably we ask, why? Why does Chris Christie think he has a chance? Does Mike Pence have a chance? Does anybody have the appetite for the candidacy of Mike Pence? I mean, we're sort of conditioned to believe that this is a Donald Trump versus Ron DeSantis battle. Is it really? Maybe not. Maybe

"The Canadian thoroughbred society and the Canadian thoroughbred industry celebrated their sovereign awards, which are the equivalent to the eclipse awards here in the United States. And they honor horse of the year. And the top owners and breeders and trainers throughout the year. The other thing that they do, which I think is fantastic, and it's different from what we do here in the states with the eclipse awards, is that the sovereign awards also honor the outstanding grooms from the past season, and this year there were two. Amber Hutchinson and Ricardo Nicholson and amber Hutchinson is with me now as this week's unsung hero. I tell you all the time that grooms are the backbone of the thoroughbred industry and without grooms and exercise riders and hot walkers, we don't have a sport and I'm sure the amber would a 100% agree with that. She's with me now as a sovereign award winner. She is here as an unsung hero too. Amber appreciate the visit. Thank you very much for having me. Yeah, congratulations on that honor. It's quite an achievement and you should be very, very proud. When you heard your name called, did you know that you were going to get this or was this a total surprise? I was pre warned thanks in this because I probably would have not shown up to the awards. But yeah, my boss is amazing and nominated me and I assuming wrote a really wonderful letter. And yeah. Super grateful to be recognized. That boss is a sovereign award winner in his own right that his trainer Mike Doyle, who's had a ton of success in this sport, and he was kind enough to do that. You've been working with Mike for what, about 17 years now? Yes, this is my 17th season with him. Wow. What's made that relationship so successful? Why does it work? I actually started for him as a swing groom, and I liked the way the barn worked. I liked the crew that they had. I fit in very well with it to the point where after two or three years I finally said to Brent Harris, the assistant trainer. Can I have my own set of horses come next season? And that's how the story started. Wow. Do you remember the first time you walked into his barn and started looking for a job? Is that how it occurred? Did you go to him or did he come to you? Actually, my brother in law, Darren Gomez mentioned that they were looking for help. And I was in between jobs and it just it became a really great fit. And it's been a wonderful relationship ever since. 17 years is a long time to be working with one person and one company, whatever the case may be. Explain to me, amber, what your job is as a groom now and your role with Mike. I do day to day care. So I, they basically become my children. I look after them doing legwork or training work or extra snuggles or a little bit of correction here and there. It is what it is. And we become a team and that team goes through the training process and the racing process and sometimes is very fruitful and sometimes it's just fun to be around them. What is it about horses that first attracted you to the sport? Personally, I find them very much like people except they don't talk.

"He went back, eventually he got transferred into narcotics and he's been promoted up to he's a patrol lieutenant now for Ogden city. Sean grogan went back. He recovered. They had to wire his jaw shot. He went back to the strike force. He was in strikeforce for a ton of years. And now he's one of the augmented homicide detectives. Who was shot in the hip. He worked for Roy city police department. He ended up laddering lateraling over to Ogden city. And he's been promoted. He's the lieutenant in the patrol division at Ogden as well. So yeah, everybody is doing fantastic, you know? Yeah, yeah. You know, and so we told we told our listeners at the beginning of this that we've had a lot of heroes on here who have been wounded in the line of duty survived and they come on board come on with us and tell their story. But then there's also, this is a step higher or a step further, I guess, not higher, but further. And the fact that under fire wounded had the presence of mind to pull one victim out, a brother police officer, and then you went back in a second time and suffered all these additional wounds. God bless Jared and his family, Morgan, thank you for dedicating today's show to Jared's memory. Well, let me tell you never who didn't forget Jared's memory. I'm going to read a little thing to you. So one of the things I support, in fact, all of my, if you go to Amazon, you can enroll what they call a smile and you can make donations. So the one I donate to is the officer down memorial page. I do their rides every year. So the last most recent reflection on Jared's page was written January 4th, 2022 by somebody called lieutenant Nate Hutchinson. Ten years ago today, still think about you every day. My mission is to continue to tell your story as I travel the country telling people about your sacrifice. We continue to laugh at the funny times we share it in the lovable dumb comments you'd make. I know you are laughing each time with us.

"The house. So I assumed that he might be going out of the back. So I come running up the stairs through the carport and turn, and I post up in the backyard. And I'm expecting to see someone maybe bailing out of a window, and I'm going to confront him in the backyard. And from this point right here, it's dead silent. I don't hear any more screaming. There's no more gunshots at all. And I sit in the backyard, not very long. Just a moment or two. Well, while I was doing that, Draper was yelling at everyone, get out of the house, you know, out, out, get out, and they were all filtering out behind me. And we're starting to set up a perimeter, had called and were requesting back up and doing all the things that they were supposed to be doing. But because it's the nature of these things and the way they unfold so fast and everything, you don't see and understand, just because you're there doesn't mean you know exactly the whole thing that's happening. So I don't see anyone in the backyard. I turn, I know that the shooting's upstairs. So now I'm trying to figure out what's going on. I start to come in. I go through the carport and I start to take a step back into the house with my intent was to go back to the upstairs and figure out what's going on. And as I do that, grogan comes running through the kitchen. I'm not even in the house yet. I'm just stepping through the doorway and he's holding his face with both of his hands, and it's obvious that he's been shot through the face. Now the crazy thing again about grogan is the way that he was able to assess the situation. You know, he was in that bathroom, shot in the face, and he looks around, and he sees a bathroom window, and he realizes that Windows too small, I'm not going to be able to escape out of it. So I'm literally trapped in here. And he wasn't just going to lay there and died. You know, he had shot back. And now there's a lull, and he had enough presence of mind to jump up and rush through the home because he wasn't just going to lay there. And be a victim. So as he's coming through the kitchen, he crashes up against a wall. He's bleeding all over, you know, head wounds obviously bleed a lot. He can't talk to me. So I grab him. Well, there's no more shooting going on. So at that particular time, my focus is on my guy. I mean, I knew his fiance at the time. They're married now, knew his kids. And I'm assuming that, okay, the him and the bad guy had a shoot out, grogan got hit, but he must have killed the bad guy. I mean, just your mind fills in the blanks when you don't know. So I grab him, he's able to walk. I'm helping to walk him and kind of help get him outside, get him down to the end of the driveway. And Steve zacardi, the guy that sergeant that was on light duty, had been waiting across the street. He comes running up, and he's like, what's going on? And I don't know. I think they must have shot him. We have this quick conversation basically that I think that the suspects in the house dead, we can't wait for an ambulance.
"hutchinson" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"Yep, that's exactly how it is. And so yeah, you have to present more evidence. To show that there's a need for it to be a no knock. We didn't even attempt to. We weren't trying for that. I mean, this is, you know, it's a marijuana grow. We weren't necessarily worried about him, being able to destroy evidence. It's not like he's going to be able to go and flush the grow. So we got it. We had been to the house many times. But that's the point I want to ask you that. You guys have been to the house 5 times, either this guy didn't get the message or he's stupid because if the cops had been to my house 5 times, I got to figure at some point you're coming back with a warrant, either he's, you know, I'm thinking like, let me get rid of this stuff. But apparently he didn't. Yeah, yeah. I mean, he obviously had a completely different mindset. His he knew we were coming back. And ultimately that comes out as the story unfolds. And rather than get rid of it, he just prepared for us in a different way. So we had gone there enough. We knew the layout of the house the best we could. We had done all of our scouts. And then anytime we would serve a warrant, we would do a risk assessment. And we had a matrix that we would use. To fill in information and it would be essentially, it's like a scorecard. You put the known information that you have. And there's points that are assigned to certain things. And that scorecard will tell you who serves the search warrant. In our particular case, the matrix zero to say 30 certain things can would score points on the matrix. If he's known to be violent, if he's this or known to use a gun, simply having a gun doesn't raise the matrix at all because again, in the west out here, everybody has firearms. So we did the matrix. If the score came back at a 20 to a 25, that meant we had to consult with the S.W.A.T. team and just basically have them buy off on our plan on how we were going to serve the search warrant. If the score was 25 or above, then that meant the S.W.A.T. team itself had to serve the search warrant. Anything other than that, my unit would serve the warrant. And we would average anywhere between a hundred and 30 to a 150 search warrants a year is what we were doing back at the time. So we did a lot of search warrants, a lot of entries trained for it. And when we did this, the matrix on it, the minimum for a narcotics warrant was a ten. Like if it was an narcotics warrant, that was ten points. And then if it was a no knock warrant that was zero points, but if it was a knock and announce warrant just because, you know, sometimes it can be a little more dangerous announcing your president.

"It's more than just. The ransomware is the cost of an ira firm. It's the cost of navy. Outside legal counsel. It's the cost of downtime. In lost revenue the opportunity cost of internal resources. The essential downstream costs cyber insurance increases. And then also the reputation damage enterprises today have a full plate of challenges when it comes to cyber security in addition to the basic blocking and tackling like endpoint security software updates and user management organizations have to contend with cloud and third party risks. The rise of ransomware has made regular on and off site. Backups of key systems and data indispensable and given the prevalence of sophisticated criminal and nation state adversaries. Organizations can't count on their ability to keep the bad guys off their network. That's why incident response and threat. Hunting capabilities are in high demand given the diversity of cybersecurity skills that are now required of organizations. it's no surprise at managed detection and response firms are becoming a staple of enterprise. Security is companies. Look to outsource mission critical security task to train professionals. But that begs the question of whether your firm is one that is likely to benefit from manage detection and response and given that your organization would benefit from mdr. What do you need to do first to lay the groundwork for a successful mdr deployment what is involved in the process of integrating manage detection and response into your current it security operations. Those are all questions that we put to our guest this week. Dustin hutchinson is the chief information security officer at the firm pond which does manage detection and response. Dustin has over twenty years of experience in information. Security risk management and regulatory compliance. His pass work has involved helping companies conduct risk assessments of new technology acquisitions ranging from infrastructure solutions to patient care devices.

"Meantime you'll start getting more vaccines going. I mean that's the key i mean. Osha has much more broad authority signed by nixon. By the way then did the cd to use public health for evictions but osha is supposed to defend the workability of the safety of the workplace. And what is that doing now. This is what they're doing. And that's a rational basis review if it is a constitutional challenge. It's very easy. A low bar for the biden administration clear illegally. But can we look back here. I you know this is an acknowledgement that. The strategy hasn't worked. I mean i sit back there. And it's like i you know and i and maybe again the people that will listen to this administration have listened. And that's the problem that we're at the end of that but it doesn't feel like we saw delta coming the way we should so there's there's that piece of it right. The public health piece of it is what governor hutchinson said to you which i thought was notable. Which is we need to do something he said. We've got to overcome resistance but a federal mandate creates more resistance that in his view. That is something that is going to backfire. I have to say the top of your broadcast here. President find did say on vaccinated. People can remove their masks. We're in such a different planet now. Chuck we're all. Were a lot of people i think especially in this. They're wearing their masks indoors. All the time again right there were missteps along the way that is something that is clear but i think the defense that you'll hear is and that i've i've heard is the scientists changed delta has evolved. This happened in a way. We didn't expect it to happen. Pandemic of mindless truculence in the country. We understand that. They would battle gettysburg pennsylvania. People say wait a minute. Let me take on the other hand. The president said in his remarks thursday. He said we're going to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated. Well the whole point of being vaccinated as you're really not in terms of the science and the data you're not threatened by the unvaccinated and when the president says that people say well if i need protected after unvaccinated. What's the point of getting vaccinated. Well begun gettysburg and george washington.

George will he's author of the new book american happiness and discontents the unruly it. Twenty eight to twenty twenty. Hopefully find epitaph and kimberly can store senior opinion writer for the boston globe. Welcome to all of you. Well let me show you where. Americans are on a vaccine. Mandate you wanna talk about being divided down the middle. We're divided down the middle. We asked about this Should employers require vaccines for in work. Basically fifty percent yes forty four percent now and here's the political divide. We put that up. It looks very familiar. Eighty two it looks like the presidential approval rating the way it splits their highly jackson. This is as much of a political decision by the by the white house. It was a scientific and they think it's a winner chapman politically. There's obviously the public health here. But i was talking with one white house official. Who said listen. They believe that the politics are on their side on this. It was interesting to hear governor. Hutchinson talk with you about the business aspect of it. Because i will tell you. It did not go notice in the washington post yesterday carrying a piece with top business leader in the houston area. Houston more blue than the rest of the state. But basically saying this is giving some businesses. And i'm paraphrasing here. Businesses some cover. We haven't had the phone ringing off the hook. The white house took notice of that right. They think that this is. This is giving the ability to give some private businesses a little bit of cover and say well. Our hands are tied. Osias making us do this so they are optimistic about it. That said chuck the numbers that you just showed. Tell the whole story. This was politicized from listen april. Twenty twenty right may of two thousand twenty when there was a different president in office. Who is taking a very different attitude towards mask wearing right. And that's how this came about kimberly. It's still an acknowledgement that the strategy that code. That's not working because reggie hasn't been working now maybe there's enough maybe there's nothing he could do with this current crew of unvaccinated people. Yeah i think that there is a percentage of people who no matter what happened. And they're not only going to get vaccinated but they're going to push against this in politicize it any way that they can. But we have seen just to halley's point some of the businesses that have already taken upon themselves delta airlines others to impose vaccine mandates. What happened a portion of their employees. Who hadn't been vaccinated got vaccinated. We saw it moving the needle. And i think that the president made that calculation. There's going to be pushed back. Certainly once you have the federal government coming in with a mandate You know however restraint we it's rooted in the constitution which i believe that it is statutorily and constitutionally people don't like that they're going to be people who that's one of the reasons that they pushed against the federal the vaccine is because of a federal mandate but he had to balance that against what is actually going to work. What is actually going to get vaccines in arms. What is actually going to help. Businesses move forward and the economy move forward but thorson. George you guys look at this through decades of history this is gonna work or is this going to backfire to take the staff and you had to make sure that has the possibility look. Mandates have been part of our history for so long. Go back to old. George washington you know he mandated that his soldiers get inoculated against smallpox. And he made a great comment that i think appears today he said necessity not only authorizes. What i'm doing. It compels me to do this. Because if the virus at the smallpox rages it'll be worse than the sort of the enemy. I mean that's where we're at right now. I think for bind to reestablish himself as the leader of the country he had to respond to this crisis and more muscular way he was losing ground because the states were taking so much authority and talking about what they didn't want to do. And and you have to in a crisis show that you're mobilizing every national resource that you're giving direction to the country. And you're making the country feel that they are a whole that their collective individual liberty has to be balanced against public. And i think those are the decisions. He finally made short shorts. The other george. George this works or do you think it will backfire. It will work in the sense that it will encourage people to get vaccinated. And that's a good thing but the president's impatience is understandable as exasperation but constitutional government on the rule of law requires patients. Remember barack obama said twenty times. He could not unilaterally do what eventually he unilaterally did regarding immigration because he was out of patience and the same thing is happening here with mr biden courts however look askance at executive agencies that extract suddenly fast indeed unlimited new powers from old statutes. Well osha though has had some success sick at having those having those authorities Reinforced centers for disease control. Found out that when it decided to could have an eviction moratorium in the name of containing appendix. The statute would not permit that. This is either unconstitutional. If indeed congress has delegated essentially legislative powers to these executive agencies that would violate the non delegation doctrine which alas has been dormant for a long time in the court. However it's illegal if they are reading the statute and finding no mandate for this behavior. It's kind of a court battle right now. I going in the white house. And they're ready for it right the ducks in a row and by right..

"Literary fiction as well I think horrors. I love but i think that there is a need for humans you know not just readers and writers were for humans to find balance in what they consume in if you consume too much horror whether it's movies or books than you know that's not necessarily good for you. You know it's important. I think to expand your horizon. So i'm really. I'm really happy to hear you say that you write you. Know light armored stuff and then to see this like super dark story no in just in. Just you know like for me.

I think that when we get stuck in a rut and we're only trying to do one thing with our writing that's when it becomes less compelling but you expand your horizon junior able to incorporate to very different things into one body of work. I think that's where a lot of success comes for writers because then you're doing something different. You're doing something new you know. People don't necessarily want to consume the same things that you know they've they've consumed over and over again you know. They're looking for something new but they don't necessarily know what it is that they're looking for the it's new it's just we know when they read it or hear it or watch it. That's you know they they know. Okay this is. This is something different and think when writers write something that is different from what everything else that's out there. That's that's when you get recognition and notice and i think it's important as a writer to try to occupy blockers ends of the spectrum and what you consume so that it can noodle its way into your brain so to speak and you know come out as something completely different than everything else. That's out there in the world So yeah like. I find it really interesting. I'm still lake super interested in the fact that you right typically rights such light hearted stuff just because like i said this is so so dark that i never never would've guessed that so i i really wanna read some of your lighter stuff now. Can you tell how long you've been writing. I just like.

Her flashlight dropped clattering on the floor and lighting up the other side of the room. She jumped clearing the top few stairs and drop kick the creature back down into the darkness. Show me she laughed and yelled the creature groaned in pain like allowing bovine. Show me real pain. Phase chaotic laughter bubbled up from the stairwell. The strange man. Jeremiah followed the sound to see the girl wrestling with the creature at the bottom of the stairs. What the fuck he yelled. Terror exploded inside him. that girl. She snapped her attention onto him. She visited the thing with her. Bare hands completely destroyed her green jackets soaked in its blood. Her hands her. Four arms drenched. Jeremiah didn't say another word in favor. Returned to messing in the remains. She repeated the same phrase her shrieking. Die down to a whisper with each utterance. Show me show me show me. I wanna know real pain. Faith thought she stood up most of her tracksuits soaked through with the blood of the creature. The fuck is wrong with you kid jeremiah asked. He couldn't look away from her. Her eyes were devoid of emotion. The flashlight on jeremiah's phone served as a spotlight in fe bowed her head and climb the stairs on all fours. There was blood smeared across her face and dribbling from her nose. Jeremiah dropped his phone step backwards and slipped on phase discarded flashlight. He fell on his back and she continued to crawl. Fake rolled right over. Top of him hovered her face inches from his tilted. To the side and whispering. Aren't you here to kill me. Aren't you going to show me real pain. Deep gashes in her cheeks and forehead from her fight with the creature. We're starting to heal already and jeremiah couldn't keep his eyes off them i. I don't know what you're talking about. He stammered fishery deeply still hovering still face to face she was unnatural. Mystical a shuttering breath escape jeremiah. While she continued to stare do it kill me. She muttered in his ear. Her laughter was far away when she sat back on her haunches to how face straddled him. Her blood. soaked tracksuits stained his blue jeans. Jeremiah pulled his knife out of his hoodie. Pouch and shoved. It's fat blade into her gut. Her laughter was cut short with a grunt and she keeled over jeremiah scuttled from underneath her and stood up. He stared at her in disbelief while she gasped and choked up.

"Still think it's you know. I think it was a tough call. I don't think it was obvious that you could ban them until they'd already been used enough to realize that. Oh wait this is real. This is a big advantage. By which time it was kind of too late to ban them. Because the thing is i mean as a guy who follows this stuff relatively closely. I'm used to press releases every year if not every day that promised to upend the sport and this is going to be the newest greatest latest best thing. It's so you ignore that stuff. And so even if nike had said hey by the way just a heads up to world athletics. We've got these shoes and they're crazy. Is it okay that we introduce them. All the ingredients are things that had been used before. So there is nothing like there is no like spring in it. Carbon-fiber plates had been used before including to set world records. So there is. Nothing is just nike the recipe right. They got it. So right that change the sport and in the long run things will settle back into parody. And we won't worry about it but there is a period of two thousand sixteen to two thousand nineteen where it's like if you didn't have the right shoes you probably weren't gonna win the race and that that is a little unfortunate. Where do you think this all fits into your prediction. Whatever your that was two thousand fourteen. I mean when do you think two hours will be broken on a legitimate road. Course with full-marathon rules that will constitute a world record. So that means it also has to be a marathon that ends and starts in the same place. it can't be a one and done downhill like boston or something like that. Do you revise your estimative. Whatever your you gave. Oh yeah for sure. No it's not gonna be twenty seventy five which incidentally was going to be one hundredth birthday so maybe that was subconsciously influencing me but the answer depends on what you define as legit. So is there something illegitimate about holding a marathon on a loop. Course i don't see it. I mean marathons. They used to be a big deal in madison square garden back in the late eighteen hundreds. There's nothing inherent about saying. You shouldn't run it in a circle. Yes we love the big city marathon experience and it brings people together. Yadda yadda yadda. But if you're trying to break the to our marathon. The goal is not to be inclusive. So there's things like that. Here's another thing they did. They said we don't have a start time. We're not starting saturday at seven. Am we're starting some time between friday at seven. Am and sunday at seven. Am or whatever and we're gonna look at the weather forecast and we're going to make a call that before like twelve hours before so we can get the absolute optima weather. Is that cheating or is that smart having a launch window. So there's a lot of things like that. The key thing. I think is tuckey thinks one is pacemaking. You can't have people jumping in halfway. That's the number one thing. They have to change for me to consider it like a legit sub two hour marathon. So you're going to have to attract like the second best runners in the world to go and to have them work together. So that know one group leading through half way and then the second group is gonna lead to thirty k. Or something and then they're going to drop out in the chosen understood alone so you can have to optimize that to do that. You're going to need a ton of money and more generally you're gonna need a ton of money to put on it. I would s. Nikki spent tens of millions of dollars on. Its breaking to race. So my twenty seventy five prediction did not bake any of that stuff into it. But now that we've had a sub two and now that the official world record is two. Oh one thirty nine of them remembering correctly within shouting distance of the two hour. I think some of those other factors may come together that someone tries to put together a breaking to style race that still falls within the bounds of legitimate. So i would say that could happen anytime in the next ten years wins. It can happen just like it's a race. We showed up to berlin or boston or new york or whatever and someone happens to run sub two. I think that's still a long way away because again the progress has not been in humanity. The progress has been in understanding where the fat on the bone is and cutting that away systematically. So if you take away all technology what is the difference between roger bannister and the fastest miler. Today again get rid of shoes. Get rid of all of that. As a species we have not evolved. So how much of that difference is technology. How much of it is training nutrition. Everything else you'd bake into it. I mean what what would be the buckets. You would classify as the improvements. And what is the. I don't even know what a mile record is today. My records three forty three. So he's it's come down sixteen seconds so for bannister. Today the biggest bucket barn is training banisters reputedly under reporter. There is this sort of whiff of amateurism. Admitting your training too hard was not done but even if you take with a grain of salt as reports sort of half an hour a day go out and do ten by four hundred meters. So we're talking like four five miles a day five six days a week. Maybe he was doing more than that sometimes but he was training at a level of very very light level and even one of his contemporaries was a meals that to pack. Who is a check runner. Who just a legend. Yeah absolutely like arguably the greatest distance runner ever exactly. He was starting to push the boundaries of how hard you can train. He was a guy who was going out and doing sixty four hundred instead of ten by four hundred and so it's not like nobody understood. That training worked but bannister versus today. It's training as the difference. Cinders may be a second a lap like the track quality. The quality of the spikes negligible and nutrition app for a mile..
